JHFRE's Design & Construction group is responsible for all planning, design and construction activity on the Homewood, Peabody, SoN, Carey Business, SAIS and School of Education campuses. At a university that is constantly updating its building and expanding square footage, construction related waste is a high volume, hard to divert waste stream. With tight project budgets and timelines, and waste types often warranting different types of solution, capturing, weighing and recycling, donating or reselling this waste is hard to streamline. In order to develop a fluid, more sustainable system that helps reduce waste and recirculate resources within Baltimore, it's essential to understand the current landscape of partners across the spectrum of demolition to diversion.
Key functions and learning outcomes: • Collecting and curating critical information that informs long term strategic planning, partnership building, and implementation. • Initiate conversations that introduce challenge/opportunity to a diverse set of stakeholders, and navigating the process to understand barriers, benefits and perceptions to programmatic efforts. • Broaden perspective through direct exposure of campus facilities planning and maintenance, as essential experience to understanding systems level change opportunities.
Internship would run from hire date through late August 2017, with potential to continue into academic year. Open to JHU students only.
